This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this volume which is about health technologies and the health market in late industrial countries. This volume is divided into three sections. The first section lays out the core arguments on development and regulation beyond market-failure arguments, the second provides the empirical core of the three markets and their submarket environments of Indian pharmaceuticals during the period from 1950 to 2000, and the final section analyzes health technologies from a global perspective. This volume also considers issues concerning the development of industrial capabilities in late industrializers, the politics of their access, and their geography of production and redistribution.
